, is he right? >> no, i think it is a big deal. this is part of the one-liner used by governor romney at a time that he thought he wasn't going to be taped during a private fund-raising section -- charles: the 47%. >> correct, the 47%. that's a different number than the 47 million that are on food stamps but includes that number. obviously the 47% of americans is a vastly larger number. he's talking about the people who receive all or a substantial part of their income from the government. so he's talking about government employees as well as people that are on social security, medicare, medicaid. charles: that's not what he really meant. >> no, i don't think he meant to disparage those people. charles: the gist is there are a whole lot of people on that and they have no reason to change leadership. >> correct. the reason he can say that -- i don't know if he articulated this is that when the government takes money from us whenever we get our paychecks, fdr said it would hold -- his word, i'm saying that in quotes -- money for us in a savings account. in fact it doesn't hold that mone
were obviously going for governor mitt romney. what's your answer to him? >> you know, i tweeted a lot about brian and i tweeted very negative things about brian. i said that the nbc nightly news has become very, very boring, which it has. and he was critical of that. and it has become very boring. and a couple of other things. so he actually, i picked up 197, 137,000 followers after he and others mentioned what i did, my little attack on brian. the funny thing is, when i tweeted about brian, nobody cared. they were more interested in patterson and kristen stewart. they didn't care about brian inasmuch such is twitterverse. >> brian: it was a great compliment. right in the middle of the election, he starts reading my tweets. >> steve: speaking of the election, how do you think mitt romney ran his campaign? >> well, i think he's a wonderful guy. i think he's a nice guy, but he should have been tougher. he should have been out there more. he should have been on your show a lot. he should have been on lots of other shows and say what you want about obama, he was on letterman, he was on le
really could have worked for romney is bipartisanship, to talk about how, as a republican governor and democratic state, he made it work. the romney campaign got to that late, probably too late. >> first debate. >> yeah, and mike, you also asked him what the biggest gift to the campaign was. was it the tape? was it the 47% tape? >> there was that, and he said they also made a terrible mistake at the end with that jeep commercial that we saw here on "morning joe" that had two automobile ceos coming out and calling romney who was supposed to be the business guy, the michigan native, calling him a liar basically. >> mike allen. >> that's not good. >> with a look at the "politico playbook." mike, thanks so much. >> at his age. >> for 102, he's good-looking. >> i tell you what. >> if i'm looking that good five or six years from now when i'm 102, i'll be happy. >> you know what it is? it's all that gingham pinafore. what is that? i don't know that what was. i don't know what i read there. >> keeps you young. >>> when we come back, not a good day yesterday for mark sanchez. what do we do
of office? >> you saw those ads that suggested romney gave people cancer in ohio for months and months unanswered. you can trash an individual and get them to vote against him. again, where we had an election, there are 30 republican governors, and they're running campaigns against raising taxes and in favor of frankly phasing out the income tax in north carolina and kansas and oklahoma. >> those are state issues. speaker boehner said clearly -- >> the issues are clear -- >> we're willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions. would you accept new revenue and would members that have signed your no-tax pledge be allowed to accept new revenue? >> of course, the pledge is to the american people, not to me. they don't need my permission to vote any way. they made a commitment to the people in their state. you can get more revenue through economic growth if you grow at 4% a year instead of 2% a year. the government will get $5 trillion in additional revenue. i'd rather do growth than raise taxes which slows the economy and damages things. obama is not interested in taxing the ric
